It started with a settee.

In 2013, Annie Genovese was focused on rugs. She had just cofounded Forsyth (with fellow creatives John O\u2019Hara and Maggie Genovese, her sister), a local company that was created to sell high-end zebra-hide rugs and handcrafted pillows. \u201cThen one day, we were shopping around for antiques and spotted this brilliant 19th-century settee that desperately needed a new life, needed new upholstery,\u201d Genovese says. \u201cWe decided to reupholster it in zebra.\u201d

The nontraditional choice was a success, turning out better than the team had envisioned. \u201cThen more furniture was bought, from all periods \u2013 midcentury Milo Baughman swivel chairs, vintage Arne Jacobsen Egg Chairs, George II walnut dining chairs, vintage farmhouse benches and so forth,\u201d Genovese says. \u201cWe found that our customer was looking for a unique piece for his or her home \u2013 something that no one else has, a one-of-a-kind work of art.\u201d

\"George

And so a new focus of Forsyth was born. While the business continues to offer rugs and pillows, its furniture sets it apart. There\u2019s the 18th-century G. Jacob Mahogany & Cane Bergere Swivel Chair in Zebra Hide, with its heavily patterned cushion if you prefer the traditional look, or the Morrison & Hannah for Knoll Chair and Ottoman in Black and White Brazilian Cowhide, a mix of midcentury modern and Wild West chic. Forsyth has benches, dining chair sets and lounge chairs \u2013 even miniatures with custom hide cushions \u2013 available for the right buyer.

Of all the masterpieces, the pair of Arne Jacobsen Egg Chairs stands out to Genovese. “The Egg Chair is a pretty iconic design to begin with, but we took it to another level,” she says, noting the interior foam needed full repair. The team went with zebra-hide interior upholstery and a leather exterior, then listed both on the Forsyth website and luxury antique site 1stdibs.com. “The day after we uploaded the Egg Chairs to our 1stdibs store, we got a call from a famous actor – I won’t say who!” Genovese says. “He ended up only wanting one, and we didn’t want to split the pair up, so we told him no. I still can’t believe we did that.” The pair (priced near the high end of the low five figures) later sold to the founder of GoPro, the self-styled maker of the “world’s most versatile cameras.”

Although often thought of for accessories, hides offer several perks to furniture, Genovese explains. \u201cHide is a beautiful, natural and incredibly durable material \u2013 it adds texture, warmth and a \u2018cool factor\u2019 you don\u2019t get with fabric,\u201d she says. \u201cIt\u2019s not easy to upholster in hide though; it\u2019s very thick \u2026 Our master upholsterers are incredible craftsmen.\u201d

Genovese explains Forsyth works with a limited number of tanneries, noting one in South Africa for sustainable zebra hides and a few in Brazil for cow. \u201cThese culling programs help keep the zebra population within reasonable numbers,\u201d she says. \u201cAll zebra hides are inspected by U.S. Customs and U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife upon import into the United States \u2026 The cowhides are byproducts of the beef industry.\u201d

\"Arne

When it comes to finding the vintage pieces, Genovese often stays close to home. \u201cSt. Louis is such a treasure trove for finding incredible antique and vintage pieces,\u201d she says. \u201cWe have an unbelievable selection of beautiful vintage pieces right here in River City. Why make new [furniture] when these amazing pieces just need a new life?\u201d She says her team enjoys recycling these treasures from yesteryear, and outside of St. Louis, they find items from auction houses such as Sotheby\u2019s, Christie\u2019s Auctions & Private Sales and Leslie Hindman Auctioneers.

Once the right piece has been found, it\u2019s time to bring it to Forsyth\u2019s Creve Coeur studio and select a hide. \u201cWe have many to choose from when it comes time to select the perfect hide for a piece, which makes it a little easier but also harder sometimes, too,\u201d says Genovese, noting each hide is unique in color and pattern. After the material is selected, the piece heads to the upholstery team. She says the design process is collaborative, and the team works to stay on par with the original if the piece is \u201cdesigner.\u201d

\u201cWith most of the pieces, our upholstery team goes \u2018down to the bones\u2019 and restores from the inside out,\u201d Genovese says. \u201cThese chairs and sofas and ottomans are decades or hundreds of years old. Most of, if not all, the insides need to be replaced. When you\u2019re purchasing a Forsyth piece, you\u2019re purchasing a completely restored chair or sofa \u2013 we don\u2019t just cover the old foam with our hides.\u201d

Wishing your antiques had the artistic edge of a Forsyth piece? Never fear \u2013 custom orders are available.

Forsyth, showroom open by appointment, 10845 Baur Blvd., St. Louis, 314-422-1118, forsythart.com

The great hummingbird migration came early this year.

I thought I\u2019d be ready by putting out my feeders in early April \u2013 but the first of the tiny flying gems visited within just 30 minutes.

Hummingbirds\u2019 great memories allow them to return to known feeding stations like mine with relative ease, and ruby-throated hummingbirds generally populate Missouri, though other species sometimes pass through. Ferociously territorial about feeders, they tend to \u201czoom\u201d rivals, often startling nearby humans.

With females currently nesting for their second clutch, though, the little gems can use extra support from us and our gardens. Maximizing that support basically involves adding suitable flowers to pots and borders, and placing similarly suitable feeders in many locations.

First, choose the best plants for a hummingbird garden. Hummingbirds burn a lot of calories to keep themselves aloft, so they feed constantly. Their diet includes protein from small insects (aphids, gnats and midges, say) and sugar from natural sources or garden feeders.

Bright colors \u2013 specifically red, orange and pink \u2013 attract hummingbirds. Red, odorless flowers and feeders look like neon signs to them, while being barely bothered by most insects.

Because bees, like most other insects, suffer from red-green colorblindness, the red flowers that stand out to hummingbirds blend into the background for them. However, fragrance attracts bees, and spillage on a feeder\u2019s outside, if discovered, may prompt swarming. To prevent this, rinse the outside of a feeder before rehanging it, and select new feeders with bee-proof openings.

Three of the best red flowers for hummingbirds are cultivated monardas: \u2018Cambridge Scarlet,\u2019 \u2018Jacob Cline\u2019 and \u2018Fireball.\u2019 Also, one of my favorite natives, the royal catchfly (Silene regia), grows in scarlet, waist-high patches, likely swarming with pollinators, in midsummer along Missouri roadsides and in old prairie remnants. At the end of the avian buffet, put a big splash of red salvias for a roadside rest stop that hummingbirds should find irresistable.

Additional attractions for hummingbirds include:

\u2022 Woody plants and vines like red buckeye, clethra, native honeysuckle, trumpet creeper and cross vine.

\u2022 Annual vines \u2013 the Ipomoea sisters \u2013 cypress vine, red morninglory, their hybrid (called the cardinal climber) and the multicolored Spanish flag.

\u2022 Prairie plants such as Indian paintbrush, penstemon, jewelweed, Indian pinks, liatris and lobelia.

\u2022 Annuals including petunia, nicotiana, snapdragon, zinnia, pentas, cuphea and hyssop.

\u2022 Perennial borders like lilies, columbine, phlomis and mint.

\u2022 Pot plants like mandevilla, fuchsia, abutilon, hibiscus and pineapple sage.

Otherwise, feed hummingbirds sagely and safely. When selecting new feeders, seek durable, dishwasher-safe models with built-in ant moats, bee-proof ports, perch rims, easy-fill wide mouths and replacement parts.

To keep feeders safe from larger animals like raccoons (which can wreak absolute havoc on them), use pot pulleys to raise feeders out of reach without spillage.

Also, stop using red dye. Hummingbirds don\u2019t care, and reports show it may actually harm them. Plain sugar solution and a cup of sugar mixed with four cups of boiling water work fine as long as changed often and, when unused, refrigerated.

Fermented sugar makes alcohol, which can hurt tiny livers, so if you can\u2019t run feeders through the dishwasher, soak them weekly in a solution of a quarter cup of bleach per gallon of water.

Hummingbirds also need a water source and like flat stones placed in a bird bath to create spots with very shallow water. With clean water accompanying your flowers and feeders, though, your garden soon should be zooming with colorful aerial acrobats. [LN dingbat]

The Laura McCarthy Real Estate team is constantly striving to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to technology and the real estate business. With a recently remodeled office, the company\u2019s agents are working together in a more collaborative space, rather than in isolated rooms.

Kathy Beilein, the company\u2019s president, noted that the brick-and-mortar design the company previously had become obsolete.

\u201cIt was built giving agents individual space where they could write contracts, etc.,\u201d she says. \u201cBut it\u2019s morphed into agents wanting collaborative space where they can work together. It\u2019s all about having a computer and all of the technology at their fingertips through the process.\u201d

Since the paperwork involved in buying or selling a home has all become digital, this new technology-focused remodel makes the process easier for both the agent and the buyer/seller.

Beilein says more desks have been added, along with two large worktables where employees and clients can spread out. If, however, an agent needs to make a private phone call or meet with a client, there are also seven private rooms.

\u201cThe attitude has shifted to being more about collaboration over isolation,\u201d she says. \u201cAgents want to have a space where they can hear what\u2019s going on and brainstorm about properties.

\u201cWe used a local architect for the basic plans and had a space designer out of New York finalize the rest,\u201d Beilein continues. \u201cShe had really good ideas and had her finger on the pulse of what the office of 2020 looks like instead of 2010. We\u2019re ahead of the game with what she helped

us do.\u201d

Being ahead of the game is important in a real estate market that\u2019s been tight lately. Beilein says though the first quarter was quick-moving this year, the market is suffering from having supply in the right price range or not having the right type of home the buyer is looking for. She says she has seen many buyers looking for ranch houses and properties under $400,000.

\u201cThat price range is what\u2019s been driving the market,\u201d she says. \u201cThe first-time buyer market is going crazy, too. It\u2019s been stronger than I\u2019ve seen in seven or eight years.\u201d

At Laura McCarthy, Beilein says staff members are \u201cvery cognizant\u201d of the kind of agent they align themselves with and, because of that, have a team that\u2019s informed, savvy, responsive and hardworking.

\u201cWe have the best agents in town,\u201d she says. \u201cYou want someone who is going to be there for you and give you the answers or be able to get them for you. Those are the kind of people we have here at Laura McCarthy.\u201d

Award-winning actress Jenna Fischer recently surprised her sister, local teacher Emily Elmore, with the gift of a lifetime: a dream home makeover.

Fischer \u2013 a St. Louis native and actress best known for playing Pam Halpert (n\u00e9e Beesly, of course) in the hit TV sitcom The Office \u2013 worked with Brentwood-based Karr Bick Kitchen & Bath and home remodeling and interior design website Houzz to transform the interior of Elmore\u2019s ranch-style brick home in Ballwin. The collaboration was filmed for an episode of My Houzz, an online video series featuring celebrities renovating a loved one\u2019s home. In the episode, Fischer calls Elmore her hero, noting, \u201cI want to do this for Emily because she does so much and she asks for so little.\u201d

Fischer hand-selected the home remodeling and design firm of Karr Bick from the Houzz website to help her modernize Elmore\u2019s outdated living room, dining room and closed kitchen into an open, light, family-friendly space. \u201cJenna looked through the Houzz profiles of St. Louis designers, and she talked to me and we clicked,\u201d says Jenny Rausch, president and designer at Karr Bick. \u201cWe were lucky enough to be chosen.\u201d

With the help of the Houzz website and design apps, Rausch and Fischer collaborated on a redesign plan for Elmore\u2019s home, which was designed by Fischer and Elmore\u2019s grandfather and was the childhood home of their father, as well as the host to many Fischer family events through the years. \u201cFour generations of Fischers have lived in this house, so this renovation was incredibly special to all of us,\u201d Fischer says in a press release from Houzz. \u201cHouzz helped me create my sister Emily\u2019s dream home that\u2019s perfect for her family. I used Houzz for everything from getting ideas to finding a designer with great reviews and beautiful work to buying amazing products, and it made the process so much fun.\u201d

During the eight-week remodel, the Elmore family moved out of their home to keep the extensive makeover a secret, Rausch says. \u201cWe didn\u2019t want to give away the extremes we were going to,\u201d she says.

The goal of the project was to honor the home\u2019s history while making it modern and functional for the young Elmore family, Rausch says. \u201cJenna\u2019s motivation was to enhance the lives of her sister, Emily; her [husband, Dwight; their 7-year-old daughter, CeCe; and 3-year-old son, Eddie],\u201d she says. (Some fun facts for fans of The Office: Some of Fischer\u2019s family members share names with characters from the show \u2013 her father, Jim; brother-in-law, Dwight; and niece, CeCe.)

To incorporate Elmore\u2019s love of the beach, Karr Bick implemented a bright and happy coastal design, with natural textures and colors, from sandy hues to pops of sunny yellow and sky blue. \u201cWe wanted to give it that feeling of escape, like a vacation,\u201d Rausch says.

The biggest change was opening up the house, which included tearing down the walls between the kitchen, living room and dining room. \u201cThis way, Emily can be cooking in the kitchen, and she can still see the kids doing homework or playing in the dining room or living room,\u201d Rausch says.

Karr Bick also had to address multiple issues in the kitchen, from old, broken appliances to lack of countertop and storage space, Rausch explains. The firm\u2019s solution: installing new stainless steel appliances, custom cabinets and stunning, spacious, manmade quartz counters. Sparkling pendant light fixtures suspended over a newly installed island and shiny chevron-shaped tiles on the backsplash serve as spectacular finishing touches in the space.

In the dining room, Karr Bick added a reclaimed wood table and complementary hutch, gray storage cabinets and bronze pendant lighting. And in the living room, the firm installed a new modern front door and a picture window, recessed lighting, a reclaimed-wood fireplace mantel and accent tables, geometric-patterned gray wallpaper, blue-and-white-checkered curtains, and new furniture and accents, including a slipcovered sleeper sofa and coastal-themed throw pillows and accessories.

All the while, Karr Bick retained the space\u2019s homey feel in the form of framed family photos and artwork by the Elmores\u2019 kids. \u201cIt feels like it has that relaxing ocean luxurious feel in a homey home for kids,\u201d Fischer says in the My Houzz episode.

When the final renovation was unveiled, Rausch says it was a touching moment, complete with shock, excitement and tears. \u201cJenna walked her sister into the house and peeled [Emily\u2019s] hands back from her eyes,\u201d Rausch says. \u201cEmily\u2019s reaction was \u2018Oh, my God, I love it. I think it\u2019s just going to make life so much easier \u2026 It still hasn\u2019t sunk in that this is my house.\u2019 It was hard for her to soak it all in. It was very rewarding.\u201d

Rausch says she loved the whole experience of working with the Fischer family and Houzz. \u201cIt was a fun, amazing ride,\u201d she says. \u201cWe use the [Houzz] app and website all the time, and our customers do, too. It was great to see it all come together.\u201d

Like the Elmore family, many people have sentimental attachments to their houses and wish to refurbish them into dream homes, rather than moving, Rausch notes. Any given remodeling project with Karr Bick, Rausch says, begins with a survey of the house. \u201cWe see what\u2019s working and not working with the layout and design, find out the [homeowners\u2019] wants and needs, and look at Houzz idea books,\u201d she says. \u201cThen we talk about budget and [how] to get the most bang for their buck.\u201d

The Elmore home redesign certainly ended with a bang. To view the full episode, click here.

Tamsin Mascetti of Tamsin Design Group was brought on this project from the very beginning. She was tasked with helping transform the completely unfinished lower level of the Des Peres home to a multipurpose area consisting of a wine room, a hangout area for the kids, an entertaining area and a music room.

\u201cThe clients wanted something casual and comfortable, but also modern with rustic touches,\u201d Mascetti says.

She went with a slate floor in the wine room, with black wine racks for a modern look. Black cabinets and linear, sleek stone on the back wall also add to the lower level\u2019s ambiance. The barreled ceiling with reclaimed wood gives the room the rustic touch her clients were looking for. Mascetti and her team also used reclaimed wood for the custom table.

Inspiration for the rustic touches came from old wine barrels the male client bought. One was cleverly transformed into a unique sink.

\u201cThe challenge of this project was bringing together both of their tastes and incorporat[ing] their needs into the lower level,\u201d Mascetti says.

From the marble-floored entry to the copper roofs and gutters, every inch impresses with grandiose style. An updated marble bath, with new vanity tops and fixtures, plus a jet bath, proves inviting in the master suite. Breeze into the updated kitchen, and park it at the center island, with an eat-in counter, while you let your spouse do the cooking on Viking cooktops, or with the aid of double ovens and a warming drawer. The great room entices with dark wood paneling and a beamed ceiling, boasting refurbished artistic stenciling. Cozy up by the fireplace with a good book, a glass of brandy or great company. Finish a beautiful day out on the stone patio or with a dip in the pool, while steaks are being cooked on the outdoor grill.","supportsComments":true,"commentCount":0,"keywords":[],"internalKeywords":["#nosale"],"customProperties":{},"presentation":null,"images":[{"id":"24e237c6-b69c-56e2-a93f-5c4c7aaea71f","description":"","byline":"Peaks View LLC","hireswidth":1808,"hiresheight":1146,"hiresurl":"https://bloximages.newyork1.vip.townnews.com/laduenews.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/2/4e/24e237c6-b69c-56e2-a93f-5c4c7aaea71f/595fbb66ed6af.hires.jpg","presentation":"","versions":{"full":{"type":"image/jpeg","width":"760","height":"482","url":"https://bloximages.newyork1.vip.townnews.com/laduenews.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/2/4e/24e237c6-b69c-56e2-a93f-5c4c7aaea71f/595fbb66ec7df.image.jpg?resize=760%2C482"},"100": {"type":"image/jpeg","width":"100","height":"63","url":"https://bloximages.newyork1.vip.townnews.com/laduenews.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/2/4e/24e237c6-b69c-56e2-a93f-5c4c7aaea71f/595fbb66ec7df.image.jpg?resize=100%2C63"},"300": {"type":"image/jpeg","width":"300","height":"190","url":"https://bloximages.newyork1.vip.townnews.com/laduenews.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/2/4e/24e237c6-b69c-56e2-a93f-5c4c7aaea71f/595fbb66ec7df.image.jpg?resize=300%2C190"},"1024":{"type":"image/jpeg","width":"1024","height":"649","url":"https://bloximages.newyork1.vip.townnews.com/laduenews.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/2/4e/24e237c6-b69c-56e2-a93f-5c4c7aaea71f/595fbb66ec7df.image.jpg?resize=1024%2C649"}}},{"id":"107baec5-667b-5c30-882b-c5a566cc0824","description":"","byline":"Steven B.

For many homeowners, the adage \u201chome is where the heart is\u201d still seems to ring true: A recent AARP survey showed about 70 percent of people aged 50 and older wish to stay in their homes throughout their lifetime.

St. Louis-based designer remodeling firm Next Project Studio is helping homeowners do just that with universal design, a style of interior design that allows ease of mobility and access for the elderly, the disabled, children and those who could very easily find themselves with limited mobility at any time. \u201cIt appeals aesthetically to everyone and functions well for everyone,\u201d says Dana King, lead designer at Next Project Studio.

King, who is certified in universal design through the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, sees the style as the wave of the future for home design \u2013 for people of all ages and abilities. \u201cUniversal design makes a home more accessible, but in an attractive way,\u201d she says. \u201cIt\u2019s not just for aging in place; it\u2019s beautiful, functional design.\u201d

Next Project Studio is working with an increasing number of clients to implement universal design projects in their bathrooms, in their kitchens and even throughout the entirety of their homes\u2019 ground floors.

Using universal design, elements can be remodeled to make the home accessible for every occupant, regardless of age or abilities. \u201cThe biggest factor in people having to leave their home is that the bathroom can\u2019t be navigated,\u201d King says. With a universal design bathroom makeover, space around tubs and toilets is expanded to allow space for those with walkers or wheelchairs, as well as caregivers who are assisting occupants. Additionally, tubs can be converted into spacious, walk-in showers with nonslip tiles, handheld showerheads, benches and grab bars. These updates can prevent hazards such as tripping and slipping, as well as eliminate the need for reaching and bending, which can become difficult as people age, King says.

Another common place in the home where universal design is desired is the kitchen. Universal updates include lower countertops; microwave drawers; elevated dishwashers; table, sink and cooktop pedestals; and contrasting colors. The height updates eliminate the need for reaching and bending, the pedestals provide pull-up access to the appliances and tabletops, and the contrasting colors help those with declining eyesight.

When it comes to implementing universal design, King notes that style doesn\u2019t have to be sacrificed for accessibility. Contemporary finishes and fixtures \u2013 as upscale as the client desires \u2013 can be incorporated into the design, King says.

Among its growing number of universal design projects, Next Project Studio recently completed a first-floor remodel in the universal design style for a St. Louis couple. The homeowners determined a universal design makeover would be more affordable than moving into a graduated care facility and would also allow them to remain in the home they loved, King says.

The design firm converted the home\u2019s ground-level dining room and sunroom into a master bedroom, bathroom and laundry room \u2013 all three of which had previously been a staircase away on the second floor. The home\u2019s porch was remodeled to make space for a new dining room off the kitchen. \u201cTwo months later, [one of the homeowners] got spinal stenosis, and he made use of that first-floor bedroom, allowing him to come home earlier [from the hospital] and recover at home,\u201d King says. \u201cThe couple knew later on they would need it, but they ended up using it just two months after we finished the remodel. They were so grateful we helped them envision their space.\u201d

A universal design project with Next Project Studio begins with a consultation with a firm designer and a construction expert. Because the firm is both design and build, the process is streamlined, typically taking 10 to 16 weeks for a single room and up to a few months for an entire floor of a home, King says. \u201cPeople who are close to retirement can contact us, and we can talk about how to use universal design to stay in their homes,\u201d she says, adding that the firm\u2019s universal design clients often are soon-to-be retirees requesting a remodel or adult children who wish to modify their home to accommodate the needs of their live-in parents.

King says homeowners can benefit from a universal design remodel at any time, and that\u2019s why she recommends making the modifications before they are a necessity. \u201cYou don\u2019t want to be remodeling your home when you\u2019re in duress,\u201d she says. The design updates can make your home more marketable if you decide to sell or more accommodating to your needs should you decide to stay in the home for a lifetime, she adds.

As the population ages, King hopes to see more designers and builders embracing universal design for remodels, as well as first-time builds. \u201cIt\u2019s far more sustainable,\u201d she says. \u201cAnd it allows homeowners to feel secure that their home is livable for all stages of their lives.\u201d

\"Tilt
Tilt Out Tray

Few wonders match a beautiful kitchen tailored to your needs, but beauty\u2019s only skin-deep, as the clich\u00e9 reminds us. Storage constitutes the secret of a truly great kitchen. To work in an organized, clutter- and stress-free kitchen approximates true bliss. In that light, my five favorite secrets of kitchen storage follow:

\"Shannon

Shannon Cross

Tilt-Out Tray\u2002Scrub brushes, sponges, and scrapers lying about can quickly ruin the beauty of a new sink and countertop. Declutter those areas with sink bases that have the option for a tilt-out tray instead of the standard false drawer.

Spice Storage\u2002Imagine how much more delicious your dishes could be if you had easy access to all your spices. A two-sided pullout spice rack in wall cabinets can quickly display all those spices, with no bottles and other containers hiding behind one another, because these shelves are only a single container deep.

Toe-Kick Drawer\u2002To avoid constantly stubbing your toes while working in the kitchen, design a hollow space between the floor and the bottom of the base cabinets \u2013 but don\u2019t waste that space! A toe-kick drawer forms a fun, creative way to add additional storage and makes an ideal place for serving trays, place mats and holiday party plates.

Below-Stove Drawer\u2002While working over the stove, how much would you like to access, then and there, the tools you need? As a standard feature for all serious cooks, consider customizing a false front on a base cabinet and rewiring the underside of the stove\u2019s top to create space for a shallow drawer to hold spatulas, tongs and slotted spoons.

Mixer Stand\u2002When not using appliances, hide them for a clutter-free kitchen but also keep them easy to access. How? Well, a \u201chide a mixer\u201d cabinet allows a professional baker to store an industrial-strength mixer under the base cabinet and easily pull it out and up flush with the countertop; a similar arrangement can keep you from unnecessarily lifting domestic appliances.

The preceding constitute just five of the clever storage solutions available in semi-custom and custom cabinet lines. Although costs will rise depending on the amount of storage personalization, changes like these will make your kitchen more enjoyable to use, making them worth every penny.

If you\u2019re looking to give your patio some life this summer, look no further than Amini\u2019s.

Amini\u2019s in Chesterfield has been offering the largest selection of the top brands in outdoor furniture for decades. The family-owned company caters to all price ranges and has a knowledgeable staff that can help customers find exactly what they\u2019re looking for to spruce up summertime outdoor living spaces.

Peggy Dollard the store\u2019s outdoor furniture manager, notes that Amini\u2019s patio furniture has quickly become popular.

\u201cWe have a long history with the manufacturers we sell,\u201d she says. \u201cWe have the years under our belt and can attest to the quality of the products we\u2019re carrying.\u201d

In July, Amini\u2019s hosts an \u201cIt\u2019s Hot Why Not\u201d patio sale, where customers can save thousands of dollars on in-stock merchandise. Dollard says the sale items are ready for immediate delivery and contain full collections with all pieces, along with separate features like fire pits.

She notes that upgrading an outdoor space can be as simple as adding throw blankets and pillows, outdoor rugs and umbrellas. These items effortlessly incorporate color and texture into an outdoor entertaining space.

\u201cYou can create a new focal point to spruce up a set you already own,\u201d Dollard says. \u201cWe sell a lot of fire pits, which are perfect for creating that cozy ambiance. There are many ways you can come into [Amini\u2019s] and reaccessorize or redo your color palette.\u201d

Customers unsure of exactly how they want to upgrade their patio can receive assistance from Amini\u2019s graphic designer. She can take either a computer-aided design drawing or the patio\u2019s dimensions and present the customers with a variety of options for their outdoor area. The professional presentation can give the customers an idea of what to expect for their new space, along with price points.

\u201cWe\u2019re also happy to go to a customer\u2019s house and get an idea of their style and dimensions for the proposal,\u201d Dollard says. \u201cA lot of times, customers don\u2019t know exactly what they want, but we\u2019re here to help.\u201d

With a plethora of selections in their showroom, narrowing down options at Amini\u2019s can seem tricky. But with the right guidance, finding what\u2019s right for a space can turn into more of a fun treasure hunt.

\u201cA lot of times, people are still figuring out what they like, let alone what will fit,\u201d Dollard says. \u201cWe can help them get an idea of what will be best for their space.\u201d

A petite planter in the shape of a llama wearing a monocle recently garnered local ceramics artist Chelsea Wilkins a whopping 15,000 likes on Etsy\u2019s Instagram account and resulted in what Wilkins calls \u201can unexpected, but awesome\u201d spike in sales.

The whimsical piece is among Wilkins\u2019 line of fun and functional pottery from her St. Louis-based business, Scavenge + Bloom. \u201cI love functional pieces of art,\u201d Wilkins says. \u201cMy pieces are like [the unique home d\u00e9cor] you would find at Anthropologie.\u201d

Wilkins, who earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in graphic design at Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri, and a teaching certificate at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, was a part-time art teacher at a local private school for two years before striking out on her own artistic career path. \u201cI had this fine art vision that evolved into decorative, functional housewares,\u201d she says.

Last fall, Wilkins launched Scavenge + Bloom with a line of ceramic home goods, including plates, platters, bowls, napkin rings, travel mugs, coin banks and planters. The best-selling planters are available in a variety of animals, from pigs to flamingos, and the most popular selection \u2013 llamas. Wilkins calls the creations \u201cmonomals,\u201d a combination of the words animal and monocles, which are worn by each creature.

Wilkins crafts her housewares out of her basement studio, which is outfitted with a slab roller and medium-size kiln. She handcrafts each piece, apart from watercolor travel mugs that she purchases and paints and spherical coin globes, which are made in Wilkins\u2019 design by Golden Kiln in St. Louis, before she glazes them.

Although Wilkins typically crafts pieces in bulk in about a four- to six-week period, she also takes custom orders, including monogrammed items. She likewise makes it a point to locally purchase all of her materials, including clay and glaze from Krueger Pottery Supply in Webster Groves and art supplies from Artmart in Brentwood.

Wilkins has shaped her pottery-making skills through the years with ceramics classes in high school and college, later picking up more in-depth knowledge from two local mentors who are master potters. \u201cI learned a lot of technical things from [my mentors], and I get a ton of advice from Krueger Pottery Supply, which has been willing and able to help me,\u201d she says.

Recently, Wilkins has started to find her design aesthetic, which she describes as eclectic bohemian. \u201cI like the handmade aesthetic that doesn\u2019t look mass-produced,\u201d she says. \u201cAnd I use neutral tones with pops of color.\u201d

Although each of Wilkins\u2019 pieces is unique, the trademark on all of them is a 22-karat gold detail. You\u2019ll find the gold shimmering from the monocles of her animal planters and as shiny speckles or borders on her dishes. \u201cI like to use gold on all my pieces,\u201d she says. \u201cIt adds a little fun and fancifulness to it.\u201d

Scavenge + Bloom also has two new lines in the works. The first line is nature-inspired, incorporating real flowers and weeds into the pottery, including platters bordered with gold-lined vines. \u201cI am dipping the actual plant into liquid clay and laying it on the platter, then I fire it,\u201d Wilkins says. The second line features hand-drawn fibers on the pottery, including coasters with hand-drawn quilt block illustrations inspired by vintage quilts, all also designed and illustrated by hand. The new fiber line was inspired by Wilkins\u2019 family history of vintage quilt-makers on both her mother\u2019s and father\u2019s sides of the family, from the artist\u2019s aunts to her grandmothers. Wilkins\u2019 grandmother has sewn more than 50 quilts for her children and grandchildren. \u201cVintage quilts have such a great quality to them, and so much work goes into them,\u201d Wilkins says. \u201cThey are very charming but also functional.\u201d

Wilkins\u2019 pottery is also inspired by ceramics artists such as Molly Hatch, whose creative home goods can be found at Anthropologie.

She otherwise draws inspiration from nature and fashion photography in magazines from National Geographic to Vogue. \u201cIt gives me a hint of what\u2019s trending,\u201d she notes. The photos serve as a starting point in Wilkins\u2019 design process, which continues with writing and sketching ideas before handcrafting, painting, glazing and firing her pottery pieces.

Scavenge + Bloom\u2019s lines are available online through Etsy and locally at Flowers & Weeds floral shop on Cherokee Street and Union Studio art shop in Botanical Heights. Wilkins\u2019 pottery also will appear at the Strange Folk Festival in Lafayette Park in St. Louis from Sept. 22 to 24.

Wilkins will be the first to admit her creations are not the typical home goods \u2013 and she and her clients like it that way. \u201cI don\u2019t do typical pottery,\u201d she says. \u201cA lot of the shops and the customers appreciate that it looks unique and different.\u201d
